Blog Review ~ Loving Kyle by Kasey Millstead

Loving Kyle by Kasey Millstead

Loving Kyle is a unique tale about love, war, letting go & moving on, from USA Today Bestselling author, Kasey Millstead!


Six years ago, my world was turned upside down with the ring of my phone and a gravelly voice on the other end. For months afterward, I felt like I surely wouldn’t make it through another day. Then my daughter was born. A bundle of joy, bright enough to light my dreary days, with a glow that warmed my aching heart. I’ve lived for her ever since.
As I stand here, staring at the man who looks so much like him, but is still so different, I find myself contemplating living for me, just for a little while…


Honorably discharged from the army after five tours to Afghanistan, I’m back in my home town and working as a Basic Combat Training instructor.
Falling in love with Liv was never part of the plan, but as time goes by and wounds are healed, the wall erected between us slowly starts to crumble. But Liv isn’t the type to give in easily. Then I remember I’m an American soldier.
I will never accept defeat. I will never quit.
It’s time she realized she’s mine.

“Deep down, I know two things for sure. One, my heart, head and gut all direct me to Kyle. Two, I’m going to continue ignoring them.”

This book gave made me feel all the good feels. A woman’s resolve to live through one of the worst moments of her life and keep going for not only herself but for her child is an amazing thing to see and to read.

That’s what this book showed me because this happens every day. I put myself in Liv’s (the main character) shoes, because this could have been me during my husband’s numerous deployments. Liv pushes through life with the thought of providing for her child with no plans/inclinations to find love.
But, life has a funny way of showing you things and people.
